now i can't even get it on amazon.com

so i have this mild addiction. i love this stuff. it started when i was 6 and my grandma gave me special K one day because we were out of rice krispies. then for some reason they stopped buying that and i graduated to wheaties. then total. then, one day when i was in high school mom decided that total was too expensive and she bought these. i thought i'd died and gone to heaven.

last year, sometime, post came out with Cinnamon & Sugar Shredded Wheat, which replaced the Bran Flakes in every. single. store. in. LA.

i was horrified. i tried to eat wheat chex to get my needed fiber (turns out i'm a bit of a stress case, and a high fiber diet prevents me from feeling the negative dietary tract effects that my stress likes to pile upon me) but that only lasted a week or so.

i bought 10 boxes on amazon.com. the shipping alone was $15. but i was happy. i requested from two different stores that they carry it again, and they say they can't. i tried to eat Ralphs' brand bran flakes but they just weren't the same.

and now i can't even get them on amazon.com anymore. what if Post stops making them altogether? my parents can get them in Redding, and in Weaverville. WHY NOT HERE?!

oh, bran flakes. what will i ever do without you?

I know you're feeling a sense of loss, and in turn, probably a great deal of stress. Which seems to be why you would really like to get your hands on a huge supply of that cereal. So, right now, I will say that I am sorry for your turmoil. But......your blog really, really, made me laugh. And I thank you for that. Best wishes on your bran flake quest!

Does that mean we'll be sending a ton of Bran Flakes every so often or something to the equivalent?

You girl are such a goober >< This make me laugh. Your addicted to freaking bran flakes, its like your crack! We are gonna have to do a family intervention and send you to detox for the darn stuff lol.

Oh my silly KristenHead. I think that your sister has the right idea to start sending you case loads of them. Can't you order from post directly? I think you better try out more brand type stuff just in case post does stop making them. Sorry if that sounded like Eyore.
